Slovakia's Foreign Ministry Statement on the Situation in Ukraine
The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic received the information concerning the deaths of three demonstrators in Kiev after the intervention of the Ukrainian armed forces with indignation and dismay. We call on all the actors in the protests to refrain from violence. We call on the Ukrainian authorities and all other stakeholders to respect the rights to citizens to assemble. Violence does not solve problems. We are convinced that dialogue, and not a forcible confrontation, will lead to the resolution of the situation and we warn against taking any steps that would mean a further escalation in violence.
